Women’s Health a focus of Arkansas Urology

by Arkansas Urology on Monday, July 07, 2014

Arkansas Urology provides comprehensive treatment services to men and women of all ages. We know that every patient has different needs, but this is particularly important when it comes to women’s health.

For example, about one-third of women will suffer from pelvic prolapse at some point in their lives. This disorder occurs when an organ becomes displaced, or slips down in the body. The pelvic floor muscles normally form a kind of hammock across the pelvic opening to keep the pelvic organs in place. With pelvic prolapse, these muscles weaken or become stretched, causing the organs to “droop.”

While both men and women can experience urinary incontinence, 80 percent of the 17 million affected Americans are women. Urinary incontinence, or uncontrolled urine loss, can occur in women of all ages.

Thirty percent of all men and 40 percent of all women in the U.S. live with overactive bladder symptoms. This occurs when the bladder muscle contracts more often than necessary, even when the bladder isn’t full. This constant contraction causes sudden, overwhelming urges to urinate.

At Arkansas Urology, we have the dedicated staff, state-of-the-art technology and leading-edge procedures to meet the needs of our patients. We strive to ensure that your corrective treatment and recovery will be faster and more comfortable so you can return to the full, satisfying lifestyle you deserve.
